Steve Harvey Loses Two Shows They say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place, but Steve Harvey is proof it does.   After seven years NBCUniversal is muting Harvey’s Talk Show “Steve”.  Harvey told fans he’s already taped the finale.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cancellation has been nine months in the making ever since Harvey tried a new format which called for more celebrity interviews–a move that didn’t slow the show’s continued decline in viewers.  Harvey’s wife Marjorie shared a loving message before taping the last show saying to her husband, “So proud of you baby! Let’s go do this”.

Harvey’s new chapter in life also means the loss of another host gig.  Harvey is also being replaced on the reality game shot “Little Big Shots”  In both cases, Harvey is being replaced by White women…”Little Big Shots” will be hosted by actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy when it returns this fall.  NBCUniversal is rolling out a new talk to fill the vacancy left by”Steve” with singer Kelly Clarkston slated to host.

Falling “Star”  They say bad news comes in threes. After three seasons on FOX, the network is calling it quits for the show “Star”.  According to the Grio, “News of the “Empire” spinoff getting the ax comes as a shock to fans, seeing as to how the season three finale left off on a huge cliffhanger. The last episode aired on Wednesday (May 8), just two days before the cancellation announcement.”  The Lee Daniel’s creation brought in some major star power including Queen Latifah, but none of it was enough to save the struggling drama which lost more viewers in season three hitting an all time low during May ratings.  Daniels other FOX drama “Empire” lost twice as many viewers as its spinoff and was buried under drama from star Jussie Smollet.  But outlets confirm leads Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard will return for a sixth season on “Empire”.

Three Times the Charm for Kenan Thompson  The comedian has inked a deal with NBC to star in his own show call “The Kenan Show”.  The Hollywood Reporter says “The single-camera comedy, exec produced by SNL mastermind Lorne Michaels, stars the comedian as a newly widowed dad who is determined to be everything for his kids while begrudgingly letting his persistent father-in-law (played by Andy Garcia) become more involved in their lives.”  Thompson will have to burn the midnight oil to take on a new show as he refuses to leave his old one.  Thompson will remain on the upcoming season of “SNL” for the new season continuing his streak as the longest running cast member of late-night comedy sketch show “SNL”(16 years and counting).  And as if that’s not enough, Kenan is also joining the judges panel on another show, “Bring the Funny” —a comedy competition show in the fashion of “American Idol”.

For this week’s look at some of your favorite celebs in Black Hollywood, that’s a wrap!

    Now that the white hollywood devils fired Steve Harvey from two shows, he may try to act like he is committed to helping the black community. Ignore this buck dancing fool. Do not give him your money or attention. Remember, Steve said he didn’t give a damn about slavery. We shouldn’t give a damn about him!

    Steve Harvey, Stacey Dash and Halle Berry kissed the white man’s backside and received the termination slip. Coonin for the white devil is similar to drug use; temporary high then a very low depression, which leads to addiction. In conclusion, Steve, Stacey and Halle are addicted to coonin and kissing the white man’s behind. In the case of Stacey Dash and Halle Berry they kissed the white man’s behind literally!

    Cancel all of Steve Harvey’s shows! He doesn’t care about slavery so we shouldn’t care about him. I hope he loses all of his money! Breaking news, Star and Empire have been cancelled! I hope Lee Daniels loses all of his money!

    Sorry to hear about STAR’s cancellation especially after that bang up season finale; I know viewership has fallen but those loyal fans deserve closure; you can’t just wantonly murder an elder woman, shoot up a wedding hitting several primary characters and then end the show!! The show ends with murder but no justice; very unfair to those who stuck with the show from the beginning! A few episodes could wrap up the story line and bring ‘closure’ to fans! I hope they’ll reconsider and give the show a decent ending for fans and actors alike!!

    I knew that things were going to start going south for Steve Harvey. Karma is a b**ch. The way he dogged his ex-wife Mary and tried to stop her from getting ahead has finally caught up with him. He took her son and didn’t want her to have anything. What goes around comes around.

      Did I mention that Fox’s “Empire” may be getting the ax as well? If that show also gets cancelled, then I’m gonna miss watching it! This is wack!

    I enjoyed Star more than Empire. I’m really disappointed to see it canceled. The talent, young and older, is phenomenal!
